Photos: Napa and Sonoma counties hit by Glass and Shady fires

California’s wine county is once again facing threats from wildfires.

The Glass fire broke out early Sunday west of Highway 29 near Deer Park. Despite a strong firefighting response, the fire expanded steadily through the day, growing to at least 2,500 acres.

Authorities are calling the Spring Mountain fire the Boysen fire. Slightly to the west in Sonoma County is the Shady fire, which is prompting evacuation warnings above Kenwood, along Los Alamos Road.

The fires were driven by strong, gusty winds, which were expected to last through late Monday. The National Weather Service said strong winds, warm temperatures and low humidity would continue through 9 p.m. Monday.
